Action Against Hunger brings its unique brand of playful gastronomic ‘payback’ with its annual Too Many Critics event in London, which is taking place at Ceviche Old St on Sunday 5th June 2016.
The premise of the event is simple – a team of some of the top restaurant critics will be dropping their pens and picking up the pans as they truly find out what it’s like to be on the other side of the pass!
This year guests will be welcomed with a Champagne Taittinger reception, before the critics are put through their paces to prepare an exclusive Peruvian style dinner. This year’s critics include Lucas Hollweg (Food Writer), Bill Knott (The FT’s How to Spend It), Lisa Markwell (Former editor, The Independent on Sunday), Rose Prince (The Telegraph), Jay Rayner (The Observer) and Rebecca Woollard (Delicious Magazine). (Our invite must be in the post ;-))
The critics will be judged by a room of 120 top chefs and restaurateurs, as they get a rare opportunity to pass judgement on the most influential tastemakers.
Chefs judging the critics include Dan Doherty (Duck & Waffle), Neil Rankin (Smokehouse and Bad Egg), Francesco Mazzei (Sartoria), Shaun Searley (Quality Chophouse), Brad Mcdonald (The Lockhart and Shotgun BBQ), Pascal Aussignac (Club Gascon) and Hamish Brown (Roka). This year’s host is food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden (BBC Radio 2), who will also be conducting the live auction.
Guests will then have the opportunity to bid on a host of exclusive and money-can’t-buy experiences and items in the Live and Silent Auctions.
Bill Knott (The FT’s How to Spend It) says, “Thanks to Action Against Hunger, I’ve seen first-hand how the money we raise in the UK transforms the lives of children who live thousands of miles away. We are all global citizens now, and it really is within our power to end child hunger in our lifetimes. I think future generations will hold us accountable if we don’t grasp that chance.”
Tickets are priced at £120 per person, with all proceeds from the event going towards Action Against Hunger’s work to provide malnourished children with healthier futures.
